Padres Non-Tender Juan Oramas

Today was the deadline for teams to tender contracts to players on the 40-man roster. The Padres decided to non-tender Juan Oramas, removing him from the 40-man roster.

Oramas was considered a top prospect in the Padres organization, but he is currently rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. He is not expected to be back by midseason at the earliest.

Oramas, 22, is a Mexican-born left-hander who has had success in the Padres organization. In 2011, Oramas went 10-6, with a 3.49 between Single-A Lake Elsinore and AA San Antonio. He struggled in San Antonio in eight starts in 2012, posting a 6.37 ERA. It seems like the Padres will keep him in the organization, assuming another team does not claim him.
